Toomey was born and raised in St. Louis, MO and currently lives in Columbus, OH with her husband. She received her Bachelor of Science in Health Science with a certificate in Multicultural Studies from the University of Missouri – Columbia. After graduating, she worked as a cardiac rhythm management clinical specialist for Boston Scientific, serving as an expert on implantable cardiac devices and helping to coordinate research trials.
After PA school, Toomey plans to practice in cardiac electrophysiology and continue to participate in research to advance the therapy options available for patients with implantable cardiac devices and electrophysiologic cardiac conditions. She also hopes to continue her education to earn her Doctor of Medical Science and teach in the field of cardiology.
Toomey has volunteered for over 10 years with Team Activities for Special Kids (TASK) in St. Louis. TASK is a year-round instructional sports program that provides athletic and social opportunities to kids with developmental and physical disabilities. She now works with her husband to help coordinate the medical care of the campers at TASK each summer. TASK camp is one of their favorite weeks of the year. From this experience, she became very passionate about providing adaptive and high-quality medical care for children and adults with developmental disabilities. She hopes to one day open a low-cost clinic with adaptive and sensory friendly exam rooms along with providing in-office sedation to make medical procedures manageable for these patients and their families.
In her free time, Toomey enjoys spending time outdoors, walking to local coffee shops in her neighborhood, watching Netflix, and borrowing her friends’ dogs for walks.
